Acem from Scandinavia – a unique player on the New York meditation scene

Course type: Acem Talk

The Norwegian Rolf Brandrud, teacher of Acem Meditation since 1974, will give an open talk about the experience of 50 years of colorful meditation history, ranging from the Beatles to New Age, to Mindfulness and to Acem Meditation, seen from the perspective of a non-religious, psychology- and science-based Scandinavian organization – Acem. 

The talk will be held on two occasions; at 7.30 - 8.30 pm on Wednesday 4 and Thursday 12 October at the Acem Center, 305 W, 52nd st. Suite 1L, New York NY 10019.

Acem Meditation is a mental practice you learn to master like Christiano Ronaldo masters his way of playing soccer.  It’s a technique founded on psychology and research.

Acem was established in Norway in 1966.  During its 50 years the organization has expanded to Scandinavia (Sweden and Denmark), and countries in Europe and Asia. Acem Meditation is now at long last being launched in the US. 

100,000 people have learnt to practice the Acem Meditation technique. A large number of them have been meditating regularly for about 30–50 years. Quite a few of them have developed their meditation skills through 1–3 week-long retreats, with qualified guidance. The retreats have helped building a high level of competence within Acem which benefits both newcomers and advanced practitioners of Acem Meditation. 

Meditation, as a phenomenon, has gone from being exotic to something widely accepted and good for your stress management, your overall health condition and personal growth.

Get an overview of 50 years of colorful meditation history in the West – seen from the perspective of Acem, which has been engaged in all the debates and discussions all along.  


The course is arranged by Acem US School of Meditation
